It’s Too Late – Broward County School Board Beginning to Admit Their Mistakes?…

As expected – buried deep inside a Miami Herald article about the Parkland school shooter, Nikolas Cruz, and a school board questioning their progressive policies, we find the following:

[…]  Absent Cruz’s school records, it is hard to say precisely when Cruz’s behavior became an acute problem for teachers and administrators. Disciplinary reports obtained by the Herald show that at Westglades Middle School, which he attended in 2013, he’d been cited numerous times for disrupting class, unruly behavior, insulting or profane language, profanity toward staff, disobedience and other rules violations.

Records show the behaviors continued at Marjory Stoneman Douglas [High School], which he attended in 2016 and 2017 before being transferred, with discipline being dispensed for fighting, profanity, and an “assault.” It appears the Jan. 19, 2017 assault resulted in a referral for a “threat assessment.” A few months later, Cruz landed at an Off Campus Learning Center, where he remained for only about five months.  (read more)

Well, there it is.

This is what Jack Cashill was writing about yesterday: “Did the Progressive ‘Broward County Solution’ Cost 17 Student Lives?”

Yes Jack, yes it did.

Jack Cashill knows all too well, because he watched us follow a similar 2012 Trayvon Martin trail into the rabbit hole of manipulated diversionary school discipline to avoid criminal arrests.  Just so the school system could “improve their statistics.”

Broward County schools intentionally created polices from 2011 through 2015 that culminated in the 2018 mass school shooting in Parkland. We know this with great specificity because five years ago we warned Broward County Florida school board members this could happen.

In 2012 and 2013 while doing research into the Trayvon Martin shooting we discovered an alarming set of school policies being enacted in Miami-Dade and Broward County Florida. The policies were called “diversionary programs” and were essentially about stopping High School students from being arrested. Law enforcement was instructed to avoid arrests and defer criminal conduct to school administrators.

Students who engaged in violence, drug sales, robberies, burglaries, theft and other various crimes were intentionally kept out of the criminal justice system. County administrators and School Superintendents told local and county law enforcement officers to stop arresting students.

2013 […] Broward, the nation’s seventh largest district, had the highest number of school-related arrests in Florida in the 2011-2012 school year, according to state data. Seventy-one percent of the 1,062 arrests made were for misdemeanor offenses. (more)

Unfortunately, the school board mandated policies came into conflict with law and order. The problem of the conflicted policy -vs- legality worsened over time as the police excused much more than misdemeanor crimes. Over time this culminated in police officers falsifying documents, hiding criminal activity, lying on official police reports and even hiding stolen merchandise police retrieved from high school students.

In 2012 Trayvon Martin was one of those students. –SEE HERE

It was our initial FOIA requests to the Miami Dade School Police Department which revealed the secret discipline and diversionary program Trayvon Martin was granted to avoid a criminal record. The School Board and M-DSPD kept trying to hide the issue; they delayed responses and charged us thousands for FOIA information; but we knew this story was huge… so we kept going.

Specifically Trayvon Martin’s criminal conduct was hidden behind school discipline. Stolen jewelry was recorded as random ‘found items’ (the jewelry just intentionally placed in storage with no investigation), Trayvon’s possession of marijuana was similarly obfuscated, and all of the incident reports were intentionally falsified by officials and School Resource Officer, Daryl Dunn, to avoid the Criminal Justice system.

mdspd 22

It is all well documented. None of this is supposition. Our research discovered sworn affidavits from the police department HERE. No-one was ever been held to account – it was just too politically dangerous an issue.

SRO Dunn never filed a criminal report, nor opened a criminal investigation, surrounding the stolen jewelry. Instead, and as a result of pressure from M-DSPD Chief Hurley to avoid criminal reports for black male students, Dunn wrote up the jewelry as “found items”, and transferred them, along with the burglary tool, to the Miami-Dade Police property room where they sat on a shelf unassigned to anyone for investigation.

A separate report of “criminal Mischief” (T-08809) was filed for the additional issue of writing “WTF” on a school locker. [It was the search for the marker used to write the graffiti that led to the backpack search].

The school discipline, “suspension”, was attached to the graffiti and not the stolen jewelry.

oCTOBER 2011 - 1

The connections between the Police Burglary report and the School Report of “found items” were never made because the regular police detective in charge of the Burglary case had no idea the School Police Dept. had filed a “found items” report.

Two differing police departments, and the School Officer, Dunn, intentionally took the criminal element out of the equation – instead preferring “school discipline” and not “criminal adjudication”. (more)

And it wasn’t just Trayvon Martin, there were hundreds of similar actions taken by conflicted School Resource Officers – totaling thousands of crimes over the course of just the first few years of these programs (2010 through 2013).

CTH contacted the Miami-Dade School District, every single school board member, and the Broward County School District – to warn them of what was taking place.

We provided thousands of pages of sworn affidavits and transcribed testimony from law enforcement. We spent several thousand dollars locating, transcribing and assembling the documents and evidence; and hundreds more hours compiling all the information. –SEE HERE– We sent all of it to both school districts and both school superintendents.

Their response: “go away”.

The school board’s in Miami-Dade and Broward County had created a disastrous scheme and it didn’t take long to see where this was going. The scheme was supported by President Obama’s federal education policy, and executive orders –SEE HERE– and people like Jesse Jackson –SEE HERE– In August of 2012 President Obama issuing an “executive order” establishing the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence. Effectively placing “quotas” on school discipline based on race:

Broward County, even went one step further. They stopped arresting students and then changed the policy of suspension. Broward enhanced their program in 2013:

Broward’s Collaborative Agreement on School Discipline was announced in early November. Instead of suspensions, students can now be referred to the PROMISE program, where they receive counseling for several days and then return to school. A host of non-violent misdemeanors no longer require an arrest, though officers can sometimes override that if they feel it is necessary (“I wanted to make sure deputies always had discretion,” says Scott Israel, Broward County’s sheriff). The school district’s Office of Minority Male Achievement reviews data to ensure that punishments for minor infractions and racial disparities are on the decline. (read more)

In 2015 School Superintendent Robert Runcie then began bragging about it.

“Our goal can’t be to have students go into the courtroom,” Runcie said. “Our focus has got to be keep them in the classroom and out of the courtroom.”

Follow a simple timeline:  ♦In 2011/2012 Broward County School administration made a policy decision to block the arrests of students in order to improve their education statistics.  ♦In 2013 that same school board was warned what was happening as a result of that policy.  ♦In 2015 the School doubled-down on the diversionary policies and allowed students to break the law, including physical violence, without legal consequence.  ♦In January 2017 Nikolas Cruz criminally assaulted someone; again, law enforcement engagement was blocked by policy.  ♦A year later in February 2018 Cruz killed seventeen students.

What happens when you stop arresting students for clear criminal conduct and then lessen the school punishment therein?…. You get this:

The Department Of Justice – Civil Rights and School Discipline October 21st 2010

2010 – In recent years, many school districts across the country have begun to adopt strict zero-tolerance discipline policies that impose increasingly harsher punishments for seemingly minor infractions. These disciplinary measures – in-school or out-of-school suspensions, alternative school placements, expulsions, and referrals to police departments and juvenile authorities – disrupt a student’s education and diminish their chances for success.

For too many students, these school-imposed sanctions lead to the criminal justice system, a pathway commonly referred to as the School-to-Prison Pipeline. Regrettably, studies have shown that children of color are disproportionately affected by zero-tolerance policies, a trend that increases already significant disparities. (read more)

2010ERIC HOLDER – Never before have our two agencies come together in this way – or brought together such a large and diverse group of partners – to discuss the best ways to ensure that civil rights and educational opportunities are protected for every student, at every level, and in every community…But it is just the beginning of what I know – and I pledge – will be an ongoing conversation about how we can better understand the causes, and most effectively remedy the consequences, of disparities in student discipline. I want to assure all of you that for me, for Secretary Duncan, for the agencies we lead, and for the administration – this work is a top priority.

      Check out howtobeyourowndetective.com today.

      The author timelines the crime, shows how the FBI, local police, school people, shrinks, and social workers all were criminally negligent in protecting kids from Cruz.
      He also names the JROTC heroes and another boy who risked his life to protect others.
      He compared how Kentucky people toughed out their shooting and are arming people to protect schools, vs the Florida snowflake model of leftist Broward County, a Hillary stronghold.

      He mentions the leftist sheriff Israel (Trump opponent) having sex with a high school girl then making her get an abortion, far below Roy Moore territory. And the POS vice mayor critiquing President Trump.

      He reveals a woman “caretaker” of the boys took money wrongfully from Nikolas, threw him out, roostered him, and committed his little brother so she could get her paws on their inheritance which is about $800K oer kid. (The Sneads are innocent. This sow’s name is Roxanne Deschamps.)

      He offers solutions and how we as parents and grandparents should grab school officials by the horns and make changes to protect kids .. ending with a story of how Joan of Arc saved the other kids of her village from a madman with an axe years before she reported for duty on the mission of her life.

I would suggest that the School Board and all teachers be removed now, and that includes the supposed Superintendent and start fresh with what schools used to do about allowing continuous rowdy students or nasty ones like Cruz stay in the room or school and had the parents take the kid elsewhere. Now with PC and money hungry idiots, anything goes apparently. You don’t do this illegal and immoral thing and expect to get off scot free with an apology. You caused and allowed the problem and now must pay the price of seeking out new jobs elsewhere but obviously not in education. You are the ones who allowed 17 dead students and others wounded and need to pay for it in any way possible but no longer part of the country school system, ditto the police. You lied and students died!

        Truly terrible. That Sundance took all those measures after researching, paying thousands for the research and contacted all those parties…… Omygosh, truly terrible.

        The fact in his article that jumped out and really punched me in the heart was that all the documentation went to board members, individually, ‘to every single board member’ and not one of them stepped forward against the policies.

        My mother was on the BOE for my school district when I was in HS. I cannot understand how any mother or father on the Board in that school district would ignore the findings. My mother would never have and would have been proud to lead the fight against such policies.

      From the news article linked in SD’s OP:

      “Contrary to early reports, Cruz was never expelled from Broward schools. Legally, he couldn’t be.

      Under federal law, Nikolas Cruz had a right to a “free and appropriate” education at a public school near him. His classmates had a right to an education free of fear…”

      That Runcie is a real piece of work, but naturally Eric Holder has his filthy paw prints all over this as did apparently BO’s Dept. of Education. Oh Betsy de Vos, do you know about this????

Instead, he deflects blame at the existence of guns.

              He was particularly dodgy about whether or not his department had received a detailed tip about Cruz and his intentions similar to the tip reportedly made to the FBI. He is hiding something.

                My guess the reason that the sheriff was dodgy is that his agency is the most responsible for what happened. An agency that received 39 or even 20 calls to a residence and doesn’t take action to solve the underlying problem may have some explaining to do.

                I would like to hear the 911 calls for that address. I would like to hear the radio transmissions for those calls. I would like to see the dispositions for those calls and read any reports that were prepared. Most agencies work on the Community Orientated Policing philosophy. The goal was to identify the problems for those locations/individuals that create repeated calls for service and work to solve the problem. I don’t see how the sheriff department fulfilled that duty under COP.

                Everyone keeps pointing to the FBI for failing to protect the children. The FBI call center is located in West Virginia. Ask yourself why would someone call an agency located many states away instead of their own local agency? Did the local caller make a call to the sheriff department prior to the call to the FBI? If they wanted to involve the FBI, why didn’t they call the local FBI office? Each FBI office has personnel on duty to take calls from the public.

                While I’m discussing the FBI, let me remind everyone that the FBI received two calls about Nikolas Cruz. The first call was from the YouTube guy who provided the FBI with the Cruz’s name and a statement that he wanted to be a professional school shooter. First, there is no such thing as a professional school shooter. So we have someone was making stupid statement, the reason is unknown. Second the agents did conduct an investigation, but could not identify the specific Nikolas Cruz that made the statement to investigate. I did a quick search on People Finder and came up with a dozen Nikolas Cruzs. Without more specific information, their investigation was closed.

                The second call to the FBI call center appears to be more problematic. However, without knowing what was actually said during the conversation, we really can’t make that judgement. Even their failure to sent to info to a local FBI office may be explainable, for example, the call taker referred the caller to the appropriate local law enforcement agency for a more repaid response.

                Lets wait for the facts before we assign blame. And yes, I also suspect from the sheriff’s demeanor that he is hiding something.

        I was trying to explain that to my wife tonight.

        Obama BROKE gun control so he could prompt gun CONFISCATION.

        Very sneaky. Don’t go for the guns, as he promised he wouldn’t, during his terms. Set it up for HILLARY to take them.

        WAIT A MINUTE!

        NOW we see one more reason she “had to win”. I’ll bet a lot of top Obamoid PSEUDO-IC and PSEUDO-LE were invested in it. Suddenly the “50 jerks against Trump” makes a LOT of sense.

        Whoa. I’m seeing it now. It’s a plan that was “too big to fail”. This stuff is just running like a time bomb after the terrorist is captured. It’s a giant program to get the guns. And they started the timer with Sandy Hook. But it was planned before Obama was elected in 2008. And it’s all running on auto-pilot, without them owning the White House. OMG.

          I see it now. They used the first 4 years of Obama to set it up. It was a two-tiered play just like spying on Trump – during plus after – go for quick but count on long. If it wouldn’t take in Obama second term, it would take in Hillary’s term. Good grief – that’s why it’s all so fake and phony and scripty. Trump veered us away from their fake reality. We can see it because we’re outside of it.

            Wolfmoon, I’m reminded of modern history class in college. We young skulls full of mush had finally comprehended a glimmer of the horror and utter carnage of WWI. The class backtracked to the War’s beginning, with the anarchist and the archduke, and began to look closer. The prof had a hard time with us dullards so he explained it over and over. All the powers had mobilization plans in place and no-one could stop the war after it began, everything just got worse as each day led to the next.

            Mostly the class thought we’d be smarter and wouldn’t make all those wrong decisions.(none of us was older than 25) There are many good reasons why the progressives should not stop now.

            Q and the anons laid out the 8 yr + 8 yr mobilization plan for Obama and Hillary. Many of us (speaking for myself here) thought Trump’s victory meant the Hillary portion of the plan was now moot. The Broward school killings suggest that factors for the Hillary plan are in go status. Does Q have intelligence that the plan action items are in a defined set of ordered steps? Perhaps it could be possible to catch them red-handed at some point in the future.

  8. For now my only comment is simply this.
    What they all have done over the last few years is put every student at risk. All of those students trying to do better and to be better by getting an education.

    Not just this school, but all of them. What in the world must it be like to have to go to school everyday and see the same problems and troublemakers returned to your class and repeating the same behavior all over again.
    To know that you, as someone who is trying to learn, are forced to be held back and sit through endless hours of disruptive behavior by someone who should not be there.

    The long term effects of protecting the few at the cost of all is mind boggling.
    And in the end, they have saved no one.
    In every example you can imagine the policies they put in place were a total failure.

      My grandkids are homeschooled, Thank God! But we know folks whose kids hate school because there is no discipline or control of the disruptors, and there are so many of them.

      Back when I first moved to NY, this area was depressed thanks to massive IBM downsizing in the early 90s and I struggled to find a good job and temped for a year. One of my jobs lasted 4 months in the principal’s office of an Alternative Learning School. This is where “troubled” and abused kids went from all the surrounding school districts. Some had intakes over an inch thick with details that would make you weep. Abuse, often extreme sexual abuse, various psychological issues, etc. One girl was pregnant with her father’s child. The teachers (nice but no prize – not one could spell on a simple detention form) called these kids the Pre-Prison Population. There were Crisis Managers everywhere. (The kids respected them!)

      This is the LEAST of what must be done. 0bama and all his Marxist henchmen sure did drag us back into the primordial muck. I pray for PDJT every day to be able to pull us out. And THANK YOU, SUNDANCE, for all you do and all the work you did compiling and paying for all that data on those Broward and Miami-Dade school issues. If there’s ever a big investigation, you may well be asked to participate with all your evidence. In my opinion a lot of heads should roll over all the malfeasance and endangering of children.

                  Look at this from the standpoint of INCITING RADICALS like Eric Holder suddenly owning the keys to the castle.

                  What’s the easiest thing to turn – that takes you all the way to full data collection without leaving a trace? Stuff where you never have to go to court, never have to leave a trail, everything is hidden BY DESIGN (same reason they abused Carter Page). AND these people who they’re spying on – the IC folks – are going to be the ones that they need to watch anyway – the patriots. MILITARY INTELLIGENCE MOST OF ALL. Remember Flynn?

                  King Holder using Rook Yates to lock himself in with the data, Sally Bar The Door. AG anti-gun himself, Lieutenant of The Spy, looking at ALL our spies.

                  And a side Soviet benefit – they use our IC against itself, which they appear to have done everywhere.

                  Yeah, it’s all pretty evil. And once you start plotting it out from the inside – pretending to be Obama and Holder suddenly inside, you can look down the empty hallways and unlocked doors like a school shooter, and what you see matches the reality of what happened. DOJ was the hallway system of the school of government that led everywhere.

          I doubt he’s the bad guy unless he’s deep into a global agenda. Note that all his stuff would be monitored – thus it would be easy for rogue Obama IC to listen in 24/7. Snead would thus be a patsy.

          Let me throw this out there. I don’t know if this is true, but should be easy enough to research. Last night I was listening to Antischool on You Tube. I believe it was dated the 19th. Anyways, he was claiming that the kid that did a lot of interviews and had decided to skip meeting President Trump today, so he could be on cnn with some other students. Antischool claimed that his dad is the one who was on tv not too long ago threatening President Trump and saying the FBI had been around a lot longer than he has and to watch out.

          There is a video clip of this floating around because there were a lot of angered conservatives over what he retired FBI agent had said.

          Earlier this morning the Gateway Pundit had an article showing that this same kid was blaming our President and saying it was not of any fault of the FBI. He knows this because his dad is a retired FBI agent. They also shared a video clip of the kid messing up his lines and having to start over a couple of times. In all honesty, I don’t know if he was forgetting lines that had been given to him, or if he was just having problems coming up with what he wanted to say. The GP article was claiming he was being fed lines, but I don’t know for sure.

          Bottom line, the FBI agent who had insulted and threatened our President Trump is the dad to the kid whose been doing a great deal of interviews.

          Last but not least, the other kid who planned the march had a lot of nasty comments about our President and republicans. He’s written that he just wants to hit a republican simply because he just hates them. They’re also selling merchandise as well. Pretty quick to set all of that up in less than a week, the merchandise and website I mean. It does seem like this has been planned out and they used these kids to do it. There is also a lot of talk on the web about MK Ultra and their mind control techniques. So it really isn’t much of a leap if you ask me.
          Okay, all done, carry on.

This whole deal with crisis actors raises huge red flags for me as well. I’ve never seen so many fakes in one place immediately after such an event.

When he said he heard voices telling him how to commit this shooting I have to think was he recalling conversations he had with people putting ideas in his head to get him to do what he done??

It is possible to aim sound waves (of a voice) so that the sound (spoken words) is audible only in a specific and small location, such as appearing inside a human skull while being silent (unheard) outside the skull.

    Some of you might have read my post the other day. I am a former high school principal. My school was located in Fort Apache in the Bronx. I had a student say he was going to shot my tires one night as I waited for the red light to turn green. He said after my tires were shot, the next bullet was for me. Thankfully he was dumb enough to leave it on my school phone. He was removed from the school and sent to a reform school. Two years later I was informed by a student that was a friend of his that he was in jail for having a gun.

Always wanted to play with it after we were done hunting. It was a .357 double action revolver, a real beauty. I’d have hell to pay if I didn’t bring it along. He had no problems either using up most of my ammo. I got smart and would only bring a 100 rounds.

    I retired from teaching in Broward Schools in 2004 (34 yrs). My last 5 years in the system dealt with students that no one wanted. ( Pimps, Prostitutes, Druggies and hard core school hating dropout children) The Project IMPACT program at NE High was developed for these young adults. Using WICAT Josten computer assisted instruction along with individual help by teachers in each basis skill area, 80% of these kids succeeded to graduate with a GED and went on to community college with expenses paid. These kids were not forced by mandatory attendance. They were required to keep a job and work each afternoon. We found that almost every child came into our program with math and reading below or at 3rd grade level. Once they mastered their Times tables by memory, their math skill on the Computer instruction rapidly progressed. Reading also progressed rapidly. NE High had a Proactive discipline policy which worked quite well until administrators stopped suspending students per Board policy changes being reviewed. It appears that social promotion nets some High School students just as messed up as we found. If they can’t read and add,subtract and multiply with their brain and not a calculator they are destine to the same problems we dealt with. In North Carolina I taught for 10 years and saw these same types of kids do well with Trade and tech programs that taught them basic skill as part of doing the trade education.

      That is a great story.

      The sad thing is that students who behaved well, but who also were so poorly educated that they did not even know their times tables, did not get any special help nor free community college. Only the disruptive kids got that.

      Schools need to go back to teaching and stop giving a free pass to kids who fail, even in the lower grades. If you don’t learn the material you fail the grade, if you cannot learn the material you go to the remedial education class until you learn it…and you still fail the grade. Education should have NO “participation trophy” mentality: either you were educated, or you were not.

      No graduation without education.

      And teachers who cannot teach also fail, and get fired…and no unions should be allowed in public service institutions of any kind on any level. Public schools included.

    I was a geologist for 20 years, then 2008 happened. I went back to school to get Masters in education. My wife is a special ed teacher. Thats the route I took as well. I taught a few years in MS/HS brick and mortar (as we in online schools call them). Those first years back were the first time I had been in a school in decades (when I was a student) graduated HS in 1988. I was flabbergasted to say the least. After about 4 years in brick and mortar, I was able to land a job at the state online charter public school. My wife here as well. I think this is definitely the way to go. Its a public school and its “free” to families just like any public school. I think our state “school district” has 10,000+ students (and can’t keep up with applications). I think the state does limit enrollees twice a year so the system isn’t overwhelmed. Wife and I still in special ed.

    I teach upper grades. One of the many neat things I’ve noticed, is that the students who would be very introverted wall flowers at brick and mortar cowering in a corner due to the behavior of others, blossom in this format. They are very free to really participate. Kids who would never read or even speak up in brick and mortar just greatly advance. I witness this and parents also say their child advanced 2 years worth once got into online. Yes, their parent (learning coach) is there with them. And, yes, there are the ones who might be behavior issues in brick and mortar and they are nowhere near as disruptive in this virtual setting.

    Also, ever since I did get into teaching, I always address the students as “sir” and “ma’am”. Thank you sir, thank you ma’am.

A roving band of “school resource officers” sounds like a closed shop scheme to employ police that retire early. Based on the Broward County sheriff’s behavior and that of his officers, they would be the last people I’d want protecting my child.

The SRO was on a friendship basis with students and worked closely with at risk students. Unfortunately, there was disruptive behavior that was often handled with kid gloves and not handcuffs. The majority of our students were robbed of an education because of the behavior of thugs housed in our school so as to protect the positive data addressing reduction in suspensions and expulsions.

    What a tragic waste of life. I cannot imagine the pain of those directly involved or those who saw this coming.

    A consideration that is missed is that of the quality of education left when these nationwide policies were put in place and the working conditions for the teachers in classrooms where there is effectively no discipline. Our already weak education system then degenerates into glorified babysitting.

    Does this lack of discipline happen in schools in Singapore, Finland, China, or any of the other OECD nations who all score considerably higher in education rankings? A sure bet that it does not. Instead of reaching higher, schools are dragged down to the lowest common denominator, graduate all kids and keep those rankings up. The result is meaningless diplomas.

    Is it any wonder that parents do everything they can to get their children out of public schools?

    I pray for the families of the lost children, no parent should ever burry their child, I cannot imagine the pain. I also pray that the knee jerk reactions calm and as a country we take a long hard look at this nationwide failed policy and rethink the role of education in our society. We can do better than this. We must.

      • All too often, Law Enforcement is well aware of the problem but once the initial contact is made it gets kicked up to the city/county Prosecutors. Too often they just want easy cases and high conviction rates, so they will decline to prosecute a case if they think there is any chance they won’t win or they will plea down a case in order to get a guilty plea on a lesser charge because it ups their record.

        I have a family member who is a police officer in a large, liberal city and many times a criminal they arrest simply gets released because the city wants to pretend they don’t have a crime problem. It would infuriate most of the citizens if they knew the truth.

        If the cops went to go to this kid’s house time and time again, they were certainly writing paper on it and forwarding it to the Prosecutor for charges. BUT, it is out of their hands at that point and if the city declines to move forward then nothing happens…I would be very interested to see how many times Cruz was written up and how many times charges were pled down or not even filed.

    The campus abutted a higher crime area and my friend would arrest those individuals who made their way to the campus area to deal drugs or steal stuff. His first police chief was proud and then another came on board who had a Seargent tell him to tone it done because his arrests were making the schools stats look bad, albeit he was providing a safer environment.

    As soon as I realized it was Broward County and he had a track record, knew EXACTLY what had happened and started ringing that bell to the same said people last week.
    Thanks for the very succinct post that helps me explain even further what happened last week, but also the true damage the last administration did to our country.
    They were hoping a death for America by a thousand cuts.
    This ‘program’ was only one of those cuts.
